Good morning Friends!  Today the Creative Team and I are sharing makes using the Charming Cottage – we’re absolutely smitten with it!  In fact, today we’re showing you at least Six Ways to Use the Charming Cottage Year-Round.  It zoomed to the top of the favorites list for many of us and we started musing, how else can it be used.  Well, of course, it can be used for Christmas!  Just that use alone will provide goodie boxes to teachers, to the person who unexpected drops off a gift, well, to anyone.  Nothing like having a stash of goodies boxes on the ready during the holidays to reciprocate!!  All this week we marveled at how fun they are to make.  So I hope you scroll through and pick a favorite among all of the designers.  Most have made a Christmas Cottage and picked another occasion or two.  Link list at the bottom of my post…

    This little cottage is perfect for the sweet treats that are shared at the holidays. But, there are so many gift giving occasions during the year and this hop demonstrates so beautifully the versatility of this die. For wedding favors, it works perfectly! I loved Joanna’s “window” ideas and I can see it being used with the vignette dies, as well. Well done, Becca!ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,

    I am wanting this die so bad!!!!! Only you could come up with such gorgeousness!!!
